Over the river and through the woods to Nai Nai’s house we go!

Ascending the Vale


We’ve all been there… wandering through an impenetrable forest, half dead with 2 arrows sticking out of your leg. And yet we continue – because it is probably good for the narrative. Then hope! Oh thank the old gods and the new!! An unmapped settlement of woodland inhabitants takes you in and brings you back from the brink of certain death. You don’t even care that it is a scurry of giant squirrels that came to the rescue, or that the healing soup they give you is largely acorn-based, and vomit-inducing.
Pastoral and beautiful. The download comes with a loop for if you never want the feeling to end.

River of Io


I would like to state, for the record, that this is the worst river cruise I’ve ever taken. The zombie crocodiles were bad enough, but the chase for the stolen artifact statue that was taken by the Ice Monkey Lord was really quite too much. And now I’m missing my left shoe. So why are we up sneaking around UFO landing sites? NONE OF THIS MAKES ANY SENSE!!!
You got some clandestine stuff going on? This track will probably work for any sneakiness anywhere.

Shenyang


When I do music based on folk traditions, I tend to name them after cities. Like this one: Shenyang. It is a little village of 8 million people that I’ve somehow never heard of. Oh sure, I’ve heard the name, but I don’t associate it with anything specific. Chicago: Hot Dogs. Amsterdam: Offensively tall Dutch. Moscow: “Stop a Douchebag”. Shenyang: No clue. How did I miss this city??
You already know if you need this piece, it has a more satisfying low-end than actual real Chinese music, and it should fit in with your modern productions well.
